if is true, no doubt is a wrong and unintended behavior ... time for lnxay and his team to scratch their heads, and see what is wrong here ... :shock: :shock: :shock: There's definitely something wrong, and it doesn't seem purely related to anaconda, because the swapon and mkfs commands errors out ...
